't. it doesn't work for them because cartels and powerful entries like government cut down to size. i want to talk to them and all the millions of people across our country who don't think they get a fair crack of the whip. i don't want to say to them, guess our problems are deep, but they can be overcome. these problems about who pritt ms. fuller and who prospers within it. one rule for those at the top, and other rule for everybody else. two nations, not one. i want to say to them today, it is not the britain you believe in. it's not the britain i believe in. it is not the written this party will ever be satisfied with.

done because there is no place to retreat true -- retreat to. our entire government or democracy to be successful has to be more young people getting involved in i'm not saying that just because i'm a young person. through my work on the city council, it brings something to our system. in fact i'm convinced that they bring three things. the first is energy. if you have ever tried to make a change it takes an inordinate amount of energy beyond even what you'd even expected. 14, 15, 16 hour days and things that you thought would take a week. if you don't have the energy to see these things through, young people have more energy than they know what to do with. that is because you didn't go to bed until 5:00 a.m.. at my age if i didn't get to bed until 5:00 a.m. i would not wake up until monday. the second thing is creativity. honest-to-goodness, this is something that -- have you ever seen a 6-year-old playing in out of nowhere they say i'm a dinosaur. they believe that in that moment or go in their mind so radically changes the status quo. they have no attachments to the status quo
in the paper that the turkish government has agreed to give a billion dollars to the egyptian government. i thought it was an interesting twist in things. i think it's clear the egyptian feel maybe the american money isn't going come. maybe there isn't the money. that's going change the influence. in that part of the world engagement is the proof or the disprove of the the sis that is involved here. you scrolled a situation next year or the year after at some point where ron iran says we have a nuclear weapon. the united states hasn't gone in or taken military action to stop it. do you think it u would be fundamentally damage together united states perception of power and leadership in the world not being able to write checks is damaging the perception in the world we understand played. >> that was too hypothetical for me. seriously, there's so many steps in there. >> it's just one. >> the united states doesn't top iran from getting a nuclear weapon, does that san diego message that we are incapable of controlling outcomes in a way that some people think we might have in the past through mi
of in campaign mode and governing mode. how do they react to moment like this? they obviously don't panic but they do what? how do they take a bad thing and neutralize it and ultimately a good thing. how? >> the president has an expression. talks about our time in the barrel. and he's been the underdog enough times. he has gone through enough times. that, they're smart and they know our time in the barrel is going to come and this now is their time. they're in the barrel and they're going to spend a couple of days trying to convince people that he has game. and, two weeks from now, the debate at hofstra, in new york, he will get to show but, i thought that was a very smart point you made about the sort of soft interviews. i bet we'll see him out doing some tougher ones. mixing it up a little bit showing he has got game. >> couple minutes left. glen tlush is writing analysis, one of many analysis. >> shake the russ off analysis. >> with a hot looking hat. tell me what your analysis says? has it been posted yet? people get a sneak-peek via you? >> i got to tell you man, i just heard the las
. the protection against government sponsorship and promotion of religion, which is a vital component of religious liberty. i will just say a few words about where we are today and where we used to be. they are important right next to each other. as for the separation of church and state, the protection against government sponsorship of religion there was little and today it is far more robust, but absent flows and a lot of that depends on the current competition and chemistry of the supreme court and the rest of the federal court in state courts as well. but a while back there was virtually none. i think there is a great deal more of that protection today. it is very much in jeopardy. on the free exercise side, it is never been particularly robust in this country, unfortunately. and i think it is very fortunate. today it is a mixed bag. in 1990, the supreme court severely limited the constitutional protection for free exercise in the way that i think probably all of us at this table think was wrong. and since then, there have been legislative efforts to correct the problem. what the court said ba
